Howsar Travel Lock

The Howsarlock was designed with the traveller in mind. This device is a must need travel accessory. It’s an essential security device for travellers and backpackers. Maybe you’re staying in a hostel or hotel without looks on the doors. This durable, small and lightweight device will give you peace of mind whilst you sleep. Designed to fit most internal doors worldwide. Considerable force would have to be applied to a door in the situation of an attempted forced entry. This will give the occupants time to react.

Whether your going travelling or your children are fleeing the nest, why not add that extra sense of security. The Howsarlock is small and lightweight with no metal parts to give problems at customs.

It works, takes seconds to lock the door and it's amazingly lightweight so ideal to travel with. Nice to feel safe at night when sleeping, especially in strange places where there is no lock on the door (Airbnb) or as an extra one.

You may find yourself in a part of the world where locks are a luxury. This device is simple and effective. I have given these as presents to younger and older members of the family set out on their 'gap year adventures' - gets them security aware - no bad thing.

The lock is a simple idea – two pieces of plastic form a tight wedge into where the door connects to the wall to keep unwanted intruders out of the room. The paranoid traveller will never again lose sleep worrying about housekeeping. And no one will need to use a propped chair to lock an unlockable door again

Thanks to our customers

Just a few kind words from people who have purchased our locks.

You can carry it through airport security fine.

If I was a backpacker, especially female, and doing a lot of hostels I’d invest £4.99 in a ‘Howsarlock’ …Very useful for bedrooms and toilet doors.

Team Geared Up

Most grateful for my Howsarlock.

I am an academic specialising in cross-cultural psychology so travel extensively, sometimes to places where the door security is to put it mildly – a little questionable. I therefore am most grateful for my Howsarlock and have used it throughout the world, as well as recommended to many other travellers.
